Enjoy That

Kate Flannery from "The Office"

Kate Flannery of “The Office” was there for a very special and personal reason.  “Thank you all so much for coming out and sharing with me to support this great cause”.  Tonight’s event benefits Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Research Institute, a registered non-profit organization.  Flannery’s family has had direct involvement with the center and it’s amazing work.

Shining Star

Also in the crowd, actress Katrina Begin.  Someone so bursting with light that everyone takes notice.  Tonight she is here to support the cause and her friend, designer Van LeuvanVan Leuvan was inspired to design an entire set of wardrobe for the lovely Katrina Begin for one of her recent films. 

After that success, now they’re un-stoppable.  Begin is fielding her next set of acting offers and holds onto her lucky charm Van Leuvan closely.  What a remarkable team

Apple Restaurant and Lounge

The cool kids call it ‘The Apple’.  An upscale sprawl, nestled in a VIP section of West Hollywood.  It’s one of those places where every few feet reveals a surprise.  Starting with delicious food and drink.  Few steps later, cushiony seats to rest yourself and enjoy company.  Few more steps and you’re on a balcony over-looking the casual patio.  Soft lighting permeates from every corner.  It’s a place where you could lose hours of your life….and that’d be okay.

The event is to help raise awareness and funds for Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Research Institute, a multidisciplinary program that is working to reduce the threat of cancer to women through research, education, early detection and prevention.  Established in January 2002, the Women's Cancer Research Institute fosters collaborative research between scientists and physicians to bring the most innovative laboratory discoveries directly to women with breast and/or gynecologic cancers.
